The Cadillac CTS may have been discontinued, but people believe there will be a 2024 Cadillac CTS. Is it something that we should anticipate?
Compared to CT6, the 2024 Cadillac CTS is said to be introduced in the United States. But isn’t Cadillac CTS discontinued already? Yes, that is true—and for this, the news showing you about the reviving effort of CTS can hardly be trusted. So, what’s all this fuss about?
2024 Cadillac CTS Overview
It is easy to fall in love with Cadillac CTS. Its design is simple, yet looks so trustable hence making it to be an executive car. According to Wikipedia, the Cadillac CTS has been in production since 2002 with the model year starting in 2003. However, the car has to be discontinued after three generations in 2014.
Related to this car lineup, is the CTS-V. This car is introduced one year later after the CTS but also ended up in 2019. Both CTS and CTS-V have successors, namely the Cadillac CTS and CTS-V.
Now that we are talking about the 2024 Cadillac CTS, it seems like the plan to revive the car and release it as the 2024 model is too much. Meaning that this is very unlikely to happen. Even the carmaker hasn’t said any words about it, and probably never will.
Imagining the New Cadillac CTS
Despite the low chance of the Cadillac CTS being released in 2024, everything has the potential to happen still. What if Cadillac truly releases and also resurrects CTS by producing it as the 2024 model?
Well, we believe that the car will be not much different from a Cadillac CT5. This car definitely will be one of the midsize luxury cars which are manufactured by Cadillac.
The similarity of CTS to CT5 will be seen in many aspects, including the outer look, inner design, as well as powertrains. But the chance of improving the CTS to have a hybrid or fully electrified car isn’t zero.
Talking about the design of the Cadillac CTS, we believe that this car will also be similar to the Cadillac CT5, with some minor changes which we believe will take place on the CTS’ frontiers: the grille and headlights. On the rear side, there may also be some minor changes which will be seen on the taillights.
What about the interior? Given this car is a luxury car, we believe its interior will be designed beautifully with high-quality materials. Updated techs will also be seen here and there, with the GM’s semi-autonomous driving assistance—GM Ultra Cruise.
Aside from those, updates to the infotainment and navigation system will surely be updated to be the newest.
If the 2024 Cadillac CTS is truly released, the car is predicted to be having a hybrid powertrain. This is similar to what you can get in the 2024 Cadillac CT6, which includes a 48-volt battery combined with the 2.0-L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. In CTS, what you will get is the 3.6-L turbocharged engine which will be able to produce around 325 HP.
As for the transmission, it is predicted that the car will use a 9 or 10-speed automatic transmission. This will be coupled with the rear-wheel drive, given the car is predicted to be built on the VSS-R platform and also involving the Omega platform, as sources mentioned.
So, is it worth purchasing the Cadillac CTS 2024 version? Well, it depends. If the carmaker is releasing the CTS car, it surely will be a perfect ride given the car has decent features. Keep in mind that this is a luxury car. Therefore, the price tag could be higher than what you may imagine by seeing the competitors.
However, since the car lineup is already discontinued, many believe that the car will not be revived anymore. Therefore, we believe the 2024 Cadillac CTS may be released, but with another nameplate to use.
